Lin Xuelei, a PhD student from the Department of Mathematics, recently received two awards in recognition of his distinguished achievements in the discipline. The awards are as follows:

 

1. New World Mathematics Awards 2019: Master Thesis Award (Silver Prize), presented by the International Congress of Chinese Mathematicians.
2. EASIAM 2019 Student Paper Prize (Second Prize), presented by the East Asia Section of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (EASIAM).

 

His work in partial differential equations partly contributes to the fast algorithms used for solving large-scale linear systems, thus enhancing the efficiency. “Real-world applications of mathematics are far more complicated than those in a laboratory setting. I will equip myself with more knowledge in order to solve difficult mathematical problems,” he said.

 

He also thanked his supervisor Professor Michael Ng for his guidance.
